New size and performance dimensions
Its design principle with undercarriage, basic machine and kinematics makes use of the successful concept of the LRB series. The rig is equipped with a larger undercarriage for the US market, so increasing the machine’s already high level of stability. The parallel kinematics give this deep foundation machine a large working range.
Special attention was paid to the fuel efficiency of the engine and an optimized hydraulic drive. Hence, the V12 engine runs at a reduced operating speed of 1.700 rpm with 600 kW. As an option, the engine’s power output can be increased to 750 kW.
In addition, the rig can optionally be equipped with an automatic engine stop control. Thanks to this feature the piling and drilling rig automatically switches off during longer work breaks, which is both fuel-saving and environmentally friendly.
Easy transport and fast set-up
Major advantages of the new piling and drilling rig are its fast mobilisation and easy transportation. The rig can be transported with the leader, multi sledge and rope still attached to the machine. In order to minimize the transportation length the leader can be folded. Thanks to a jack-up system the crawlers can be dismantled resulting in a transport weight of only 42 US tons (38 tonnes) for the basic machine.
